OK, My late father purchased this Jimmy new in 1954 (55 1st series) He drove it daily for 30 years and put over 500,000 mile on it. (still retains the original speedo which was still working at last drive)

It had the motor R&R twice the tranny replaced and rebuilt once and the rear end replaced once. Always retained the 6 volt electrical system and has never had a body panel replaces or repainted.

Then the GMC became a victim of poor storage :(

Is this a SURVIVOR ? just curious.

I think that is one you need to restore, or at least make functional, preserve it, and drive it..  in the name of your father..  :)

It looks like the whole cab was painted white. Does it appear as though the original dark blue is over the white?

Well here's a few picks ... everyone likes pic's!

This is what we have to start with,



Here is how the engines is going,



a few numbers,







Trans cleaning up well, light cleaner and elbow grease, not sure if it has ever been out all the bolts look untouched







Anyone ever see these three lines on the side of a trans case before?



Trying a little anti-rust solution, I'll let you know how it turns out,





ok over the Hill and through the woods for Thanksgiving, YOU ALL have a nice Thanksgiving...Be safe!

yep the entire cab and doors were white (the original top color) w/ the blue over that.The rest of the panels are the blue painted over black primmer. Seems odd but that's how they did it.
